Dell bootmgr is missing


Most likely cause is that the boot order in the BIOS is set up for the HDD first. When turning on the unit, press the key needed to enter setup. Once in setup, search thru the menus for the boot order. Choose the CD drive as the first boot device, then the hard drive as second. Save and exit the setup. When rebooting, ensure the WIN XP CD is in the drive. When the screen says, "press any key to boot from CD", press a key and the WIN XO CD should take over and start the install. Once WIN XP starts installing, follow directions. On each restart after that, DO NOT press the key to boot from CD. WIN XP setup will handle everything until the reinstall is complete. After you are done, you may choose to go back to setup and change the boot order back, but it is not really necessary. The only time you will get the "press and key to boot from CD" message is when there is a bootable CD/DVD installed in the drive. Otherwise, it overlooks it and goes to the next boot device (HDD).

Why is my acer starting up repeatedly? It goes to the screen where i highlight the windows to start normally but it keeps shutting down and returning back to the same screen.


Hello,
Try something else but start normally.
Start in safe mode (Press F8 right after boot) then reboot.
Start in the last good configuration.

If none works reinstall the system.
Change Boot sequence in BIOS to CD-HDD.
Insert Installation CD in CD-Rom drive
Choose install.
Choose C; partition
Choose Format (do not do a quick format). Any formatting will erase all on the Hard Drive.
Complete installation and reboot.

There is something else you could do before resorting to a reinstallation, and that is to use The Recover Console. You acces it when setup asks wether you want to reinstall, or repair. If you answer Repair you boot into the recovery console.

But before using it you should query Microsoft knowledge base about Recovery Console, and know exactly what should do.

Hope it helps.
